A very quick read. I read it before my 30th birthday and really enjoyed it. No matter what's going on in your "pre-/almost 30 life", it's not as bad as Ellie's! The humor and easy way anyone can relate to her trials makes this quick read very enjoyable!
Approaching 30 is an interesting time in life, maybe you are settled and married and just enjoying a happy time or maybe like Ellie you are trying to get things settled and it isn't working, either way turning 30 can be rough! I may have picked this book specifically to review this week as my 30th birthday may be tomorrow!
I loved how Ellie was trying to put the pieces together, it combusts and most of it comes together in the end! The characters were fantastic, they felt real, but each had great stories. I loved Ellie's friends almost as much as I loved her. I completely felt the angst of her upcoming birthday and how the expectation of where your life should be when you are entering your 30s.
No matter your age, this sweet throw back book from 2003, is a perfect addition to your late summer beach bag!
